word: this cd, amongst friends and various band mates is, often referred to as "the red record" and cataloged as "pop spelled backwards". initially self-released on devil's weed, inc. , the 4-track recordings had begun to accumulate and were compiled to make this the debut full-length thanks to Archers of Loaf manager, Shawn Rogers. eric and bernard--who had just joined throwing muses -- helped arrange the original version of "dope box" which was later recorded for the album titled after this song. also, the japanese release contained the original version of "surfin' the charles".
